Nice beach but pity about the broken pavements, overpriced below average eating places and lack of interesting shops

This is an overall review of the area of Anse Vata. Yes, the beach is nice although I think Baie des Citrons is a better beach for swimming. The shops don't offer much variety... read more

This is an overall review of the area of Anse Vata. Yes, the beach is nice although I think Baie des Citrons is a better beach for swimming. The shops don't offer much variety, mainly overpriced souvenirs. If staying in the area and wanting a grocery store, they are quite a distance away. The cafes and restaurants are very average...

Beautiful beach. Lots of little shops around under the Hilton hotel and plenty of places to eat. Didn't quite understand the shops opening hours.. all of them seemed to closed around the lunch period. And open some days but not others.. you can hire paddle boards and wind surfing gear from trailers along the beach side.

Nice beach close to town. Heaps of eateries and safe swimming right in the main road. Hotels right there as well. Only had a couple of hours there but it had a good vibe and feel. Recommended.

Spent a few hours at this beach. There are lovely lawns with shade to sit and read, or enjoy the clear water to swim at. Some beautiful fish to view if you snorkel. Opposite the beach is a lovely ice creamery to get a yummy treat at the end of your visit.

During January in the summer holidays there are lots of activities for children. Well supervised and free. The view is wonderful. Walkway very flat and the beach space is amazing the grass grows all the way to the water. Very easy to relax on a spot gesture the water where families gather. Close to lots of nice hotels and shopping... More

Anse Vata Beach is a beautiful beach in Noumea. Anse Vata beach is a lovely place to have a swim and a beautiful place to see. There is quite a bit of shade and also lots of sun so there is something for everyone!

If you stay at the Hilton hotel - it's just across the road. Unfortunately, local authorities stopped taking proper care of it, there is some litter scattered here and there on the sand and grass. Otherwise a very nice place - it's a long beach with many benches and palms and tables. You can leave your personal belongings and swim... More
